While we were away, Evie and Mom did quite a few things, one of which was go to a 4H Fair where she got to pet chickens, cows, sheep, and go on a hay ride.
They also went to an outdoor kid fair thing 3rd Ave was having (3rd Ave is just an outdoor shopping center type place near our house) where she got a balloon animal, a flower on her face, and strawberry ice cream!
On the next weekend, they went to the Children’s Discovery Museum, which is pretty much a place of various science experiments for various ages. It’s pretty cool.
And when we got home, she got to play with the souvenirs we got her: a popular cartoon character from Prague (a mole) and a dirndl (a traditional dress from Austria). Also, at some point during that week, Mom and Evie were downstairs getting together for school when Evie stepped on a bee! Naturally that put a wrench in the day and Mom decided no school -wise decision -and headed off to Cape Cod -about 2 hours away. Wowzers. It sounded like they both had a fun day that day. But since then, Evie will occasionally say, “I got a bummer bee sting.”
